Ligue 2 club Le Havre are closing in on former Brazil forward Adriano according to club president Christophe Maillol. The possible move marks a far cry from his former glory days that saw him play for his country and one of the biggest clubs in Europe, Inter Milan, before being linked to Manchester United.
To go from being linked with the best club in England (at the time) to suddenly be linked with a Ligue 2 club is quite a step in the wrong direction, which has seen on of the brightest talents in football’s demise come from a party lifestyle and alcohol abuse.
Despite only playing seven games since 2012, the ex-Inter Milan striker is set to be given a six month deal by the French club Le Havre.
Speaking to sambafoot.com, Maillol said: “Adriano will arrive within 15 days to discuss with us and visit the club. He will discover the city, the club, as we did with Rodolfo [who came to the club from Dinamo Kyiv in January].
“There is a real interest, I had his agent over several times, he confirmed Adriano’s coming. Adriano is seeking to launch himself again, he is free and Le Havre will give him some visibility in Europe.
“This is a project for six months, starting in January. We will do everything possible so that he can quickly play again.”
